/dollar, 11.6236. euro/dollar, 1.3166. kind of where we were yesterday. asian markets in china and japan will be catching up on news on the u.s. fiscal cliff deal. we'll get december sales figures from japan's retailing. the owner of stores are set to release its q1 earnings today. samsung electronics is expected to post its q4 earnings guidance. that's all on the agenda in asia. but what investors are to do with what we've got so far this year? joining us now, nicholas. these are the classic risk off day yesterday. how do you categorize it and what it means for -- >> well, i mean, obviously, you know, i think it's important to be clear that this was a rally not based -- based not on what the deal did, but what the deal undid. clearly, the good news is that the u.s. americansfully avoided an even bigger fiscal issue. but, you know, i think clearly it shows how low we've actually sunk in the realm of investors expectations when the markets are actually rallying on essentially muddling through. and this is a well trodden path. it's a fairly familiar tale. and we've obviously seen it in the
of the euro currency. boy, we went from basically trading a 133, now to trading 131, and today is a big down day. one market that actually is getting a little bit of a breath, but nothing on the scale of what the dollar and some of the other currencies are gaining on the euro, the dollar/yen. the yen has improved marginally today. but we're still on 87 handle on the dollar versus the yen. you want to pay attention to foreign exchange. we still have some other data today. the minutes we'll get later will be scrutinized, especially considering, you know, federal reserve and how it figures into a post-cliff presealing debate. >> i'm glad you brought up the euro. dennis gartman did that earlier this morning and we didn't talk about it at the time. what do you think is happening? why has the euro turned around here? >> well, to me, i think that what the euro represents, or what the relationship between the euro and other currencies represent continues to be exaggerated by shifts in the ultimate dynamics of trying to score the economy. then you had in the big position growth that we've seen, and t
, the euro, we should note, is hitting 11-month highs against the u.s. dollar. marginal changes on a percentage basis. a road map this morning starts off with apple. even more doubts about the demand for the iphone 5 sending shares below. >> did you see your paycheck on friday? the payroll tax hike obviously kicking in for many americans. felt like a pay cut. will this be a temporary shock or a headwind as stocks hover at five-year highs. >> ubs achoirs tnt after a commission throws up road blocks. >>> to the top story. in the pre-market, we've seen apple shares fall below $500 for the first time in 11 months. the tech giant has cut its orders for iphone 5 components because of weaker than expected demands. screen orders for january to march quarter have fallen about half. the company had planned to order. apple said to cut orders for components other than screens. now, jim, we've had sort of this concern about demand for the iphone 5. i think last week when deutsche bank came out with the note from the japanese team, specifically citing this very issue, that's when the concerns
of the evidence we have euro yen quoted at 114.90. moving on to stocks. let's check on europe first where shares are open and trading at this hour. we're seeing them slightly lower as you can see there. investors a bit cautious ahead of the release of the u.s. jobs report for december which is due out later on friday. london's ftse 100 down a fraction. declines as well for frankfurt about .2%. paris market down about .4%. did see a mixed day for asia, though. tokyo's nikkei jumped to its highest level since march 2011. it was up, in fact, nearly 3% on the back of a weaker yen. japanese business leaders commented on the country's economic outlook for this year. >> translator: i believe the yen will continue to weaken for some time, and the real economy is likely to improve, at least through middle of this year. that includes a recovery in exports. >> translator: led by the united states, overseas economies are picking up strength, demand from outside japan is increasing steadily. the japanese economy is likely to follow a recovery path support in part by needs created by restoration projects in t
. the currency markets, open for trading for a lot longer today than stocks. the euro is still below 133, the recent high. it's interesting to see that the risk-on currencies are a bit to the upside. >> watch gold, too. i think gold, 12th year of good performance. >> yes. >> i would emphasize gold should be part of people's portfolios. >> while i don't disagree with you, because i've been wrong on gold two years in a row, silver better performer last year than gold. >> numbers are numbers. i find that the gld is just a very, you know, good way, i hope it goes down, the rest of your portfolio goes up. but remember, in the last 12 years we've had deflation, inflation, good control, bad control, but gold is steady because gold is in short supply in the world. >> i thought we were being positive. i'm optimistic for the next year or so. ten years out, different story. oil prices, right? while they've gone up in the last couple weeks, gas prices are down. >> gasoline. >> gasoline. and nat gas remains fairly low. >> nat gas at four-month lows right now. >> let's not underestimate the extra mone
currency. the euro is the alternative and look at the problem they are having there. the dollar has gone down in value by 50% against the euro in the last decade. that's because our debt tripled in that amount of time 1971 the so-called nixon shock of wage and price controls and the gold standard ever since then since there has been dollar inflation. it has been fairly consistent in terms of its value, hasn't it? >> no. it's done with up and down. like i said, it's t. lost a tremendous amount of value against the euro. and the issue is the fed just prints money. it just keeps interest. in for the economy. there is going to be inflation. prohibited oddly enough in richard virginia. there you go. look at these. v.a. is going to spend $22,000 to study a virginia alternative currency. that kind of a waste of taxpayer money? >> you know, in a way it is. the issue is we have had, before we haven't just had the dollar forever. at one point, in 1836, there were every state had its own bank note. and there were 16,000 chartered types of currency. so easy to counterfeit. it d bs didn't work at all
